The Syrian crisis, in fact, is not a civil war or a revolution against a dictator. It is more of a regional and international conflict. Leaks to inability of the partners to monitor and manage the Syrian territories and the ongoing conflicts in the region are far from reality.
If there is a solution, it will be given only with external settlement, with the agreement of all sides for a road map to resolve the crisis.
What happens after the Russian-Turkish agreement
Over the past three weeks we saw many meetings, reportable and non, between partners who control the Syrian crisis, the most important and the greatest impact on the return of Russian-Turkish relations in their old form, and the visit of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman USA.
While some countries are trying to find a way to end this costly conflict, others try to block a solution.The visit of US Foreign Secretary of State John Kerry in Moscow next week is the most important.
Unlike the communications media that will cover the debate on combating Al Nusra in Syria, the truth is completely different. This visit aims to access the American side in the new Russian plan for the Syrian crisis.They will accept, however, the Americans?
Russian plan to resolve the Syrian crisis
The Russian plan envisages removal of Bashar Al Assad and install a senior officer of the Syrian armed forces, who are Alawites, has dyed his hands with Syrian blood and was not involved in the Syrian conflict, assisted by an officer who is Sunni.
The two officers will create a military council consisting of active Syrian officers and some who defected, which will govern the country for a transitional period of nine months, will amend the constitution, organize elections and then presidential elections. The names of the two officers, based on my sources, is the former Defence Minister, General Ali Habib (who are Alawites) and General Manaf Tlass (who are Sunni).
General Ali Habib, 77 years old, fought in the October 1973 war against Israel and was one of the military leaders in Beirut battles. He was in charge of the Syrian brigade during business Desert Strom I against Saddam Hussein – which makes the relationship with Saudi Arabia good – in 1994 he became commander of the special forces and in 2009 was chosen as defense minister.
When the Syrian revolution erupted, General Habib took a clear position against the use of force to resolve the crisis and in August of that year failed command of Assad attacking with the army in the city Hama, and so was replaced by Christian quarterback Dawou Rajha.
Mysteriously, General Ali Habib managed to travel to Paris with his daughter. Turkish reliable sources confirm that on 10th of July, General Habib was officially admitted to Ankara at the presence of the Chief of the Turkish General Staff and the Director of the Turkish secret services General Hakan Fidan.
For two days, the three men held consultations attended by representatives of the Syrian opposition militias, head of which was the representative of militia Ahrar al-Sham. Then, with the utmost secrecy, General Habib traveled to Moscow. The same sources said that General will return to Ankara at the end of this month to meet with officers who defected from the army of Assad, and to the director of Jordanian intelligence.
Finally, French sources affirm that during the last two months there have been many meetings between generals Habib and Tlass in Paris. The same sources said that General Tlass traveled on July 9 in Jordan, where he met the head of Jordanian intelligence.
Despite the secret movements mentioned, the hope for a solution acceptable to the regional and international forces is low. The Iranians wiclinging to the preservation of Assad in power, the Americans insist on creation Kurdish state in northern Syria.
Are we in front of the end of the greater conflict and an international crisis that affects the entire world, or we are facing a new setback will confirm the ineffectiveness of the United Nations and the Security Council in resolving international crises?
